Creating Business Models and Plans: Every business starts with an idea, but it's a long journey from idea to concept to execution and actual operation. A business plan allows us to visualize not only the future of our business but the path to getting there, while identifying the perils along the journey and the multiple choices to be made along the way. Plans change, adapt, often are left behind, but they provide an effective way to start a business with sound goals, proper considerations, assessments and expectations, prepared for the unexpected while the wonderful journey of entrepreneurship takes us to places we couldn't predict or dream of. In this course, you learn how to create a professional business plan from scratch customized for your project that will serve as the foundation of a validated strategy and as an effective communication and fundraising tool. Step by step instructions and real life examples for multiple industries are provided as well as editable templates and tools to create your own plan, presentations and communication documents.
